    Conductor, impresario, entrepreneur and wit, Sir Thomas Beecham raised British orchestral standards, brought Mozart and Haydn into the concert repertory and was a tireless advocate of the music of Delius. For this biography John Lucas has delved into Beecham's private papers and correspondence, weeding out the apocryphal stories that grew up around this larger-than-life figure and uncovering the serious and determined mind behind the mask. The paperback edition is updated with newly-discovered information.
